    As Expected, Marty and Miller...

    As expected, Marty and Miller are blasting Hobbs. Said he was burned on the play where he made the pick, that he was 3 yards behind the receiver and was lucky the guy missed the catch. Also said he's been overmatched all season long and that he's a horrible CB, and that it showed on PB touchdown.

    The way Ellis plays CB, he is prone to give up alot of big plays. He is also prone to make alot of big plays himself. High risk, high reward.

    If the Patriots thought Ellis Hobbs was a horrible CB, think they would have put him on their best WR?

    Honestly... he did get beat on the play where he made the pick.

    He had a good game until that point. If they think he was why NE lost they must have missed NE's Oline play.

    Re: As Expected, Marty and Miller...

    Pats win, and they praise Hobbs for holding Burress to fewer catches than his other games.


    The other big play against Hobbs was because the WR got away with a hand in Ellis' face.

    Bingo. Another thing I was thinking, which is obvious, is that had NE held on to win, the guy -- can't remember his name -- who was burned on the play where Moss caught the TD would've been called the goat of the game by media types like Peter King, Jim Rome, Marty & Miller, etc.

    Re: As Expected, Marty and Miller...

    CB is the toughest position in the NFL. They run PB on that route to the other side of the field and they probably get a TD either way...


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    It's hard to not get beat on a 5 yard play.

    That's the reason you run those slants and hooks - they're dang near impossible to cover.

    Re: As Expected, Marty and Miller...

    You have to take everything they say with a grain of salt. They like to hear themselves talk and sometimes go overboard. If Ellis was a bad CB, he wouldn't be starting for a team like the Patriots.

    Just call in and give Marty a hard time about the Pats. He's been hyping them all year and he's gotta take some heat finally. Just like he blasts on Drake, what goes around comes around..

    He got badly beat on the most important play of the game. He'll obviously take some heat for that (deserved IMO).

    But like others have said, if he was that horrible, the Pats wouldn't have had him out there to begin with.

    Re: As Expected, Marty and Miller...

    Quit sounding like such homers here guys. If that was Bob Sanders that got burnt you all would be all over how Sanders cost them the game or what not. Several of you here are quick to point out every Hawk player that does 1 little thing wrong in a game and make a big production out of it then when one of our own has a bad moment you get all defensive.

    Yes, Hobbs did not single handedly cost them the game but when they show the highlight of the game winning touchdown 10 years from now, its still going to be #27 Hobbs in the background with Burress catching the ball. You can't sugar coat that at all, he gave up the game winning touchdown and yes it sucks but life goes on.

    Right. AND he got burnt by one of the NFL's best...who is also 8" taller than Hobbs.
